The M. W. Grand Master, J. Q. A. Fellows, then de- 
livered the following address to the Grand Lodge : 

Brethren of the Grand Lodge : 

On again assembling in Annual Grand Communication, it is my 
duty to lay before you my official acts and such transactions as may 
affect our Order in this jurisdiction, and to suggest for your con- 
sideration sucli matters as may seem for the good of the craft and 
proper to be acted upon by the Grand Lodge. 

It is with a feeling of sadness that I notice the absence of many 
a face which I have had the pleasure to greet here during the last 
ten years. Many who have heretofore come up to this annual as- 
sembly and assisted us with their counsels, have, at the call of tlieir 
country, left friends and home to serve its behests on the tented 
field and in the deadly strife of battle. A mason's duty is to his 
country, next after that to his God, and then to his neighbor before 
himself. This is the order of a mason's duties, and the true mason 
knows how best to fulfill then). May we who remain behind remem- 
ber them in our prayers ; may their success be in proportion to the 
justness of their cause ; and may they be permitted to return in 
God's own good time, to rejoice with us in our country's deliverance 
and to receive the welcome of their friends and brethren. 

But while those called away from our counsels to meet the foe 
fills our minds with sad thoughts, there are other events of tlie past 
year which we feel with a deeper anguisli. Death has been among 
us, and taken from our midst those we looked up to with respect 
and whom we have ever delighted to honor. 

On the 23d of March last. Past Deputy Grand Master, Thomas H. 
Lewis, departed this life, at his home in Opelousas, full of years, and 
yet till within a short time before his death, apparently in the height 
of his career of usefulness. 



1862,] GRAND LODGE. 11 

On the 24111 of December last, our Grand Secretary, Samuel G. 
Risk, departed this life, at Memphis, Tenn., whither he had gone in 
the delusive hope of regaining that health which he had lost in the 
service of his country. It was a sad Christmas to us when the 
telegraph announced that we should see his living form no more. 
His remains were brought to this city, and interred by the Grand 
Lodge with all due solemnities. 

It is but fitting that some suitable testimony' of respect should be 
reported to the Grand Lodge by an appropriate committee. 

I have called upon each Lodge to preserve a record of all who 
have gone to the war, and to state the fact in their returns, as an 
interesting matter for future reference. In the present time of 
trouble, it behooves our elder brethren to return again to their active 
duties in the Lodge, and b}'- their exertions keep the Order alive 
and provide for the wants of the families of the younger brethren 
now absent in the service of their country. As has been said of 
old. Masonry best nourishes in times of peace; yet, as we love the 
Order, our exertions to preserve it will be in proportion to the 
present necessities. Let us meet like men and masons the greater 
calls upon us, and also remember, in this our time of peril, that the 
charity of Freemasonry is universal, and is even to be extended, so 
far as safety will allow, to a fallen foe. 

The Lodge of which I am a member lias remitted the dues of its 
members for the entire period which they may be engaged in the 
military service of the Confederacy; and some others, I understand, 
have made a similar provision. Tliis has met witli my entire 
approval. 

There are a number of masons residing with us who have never 
withdrawn from the Lodges to which they belonged in the Northern 
States, and it is now impossible for them to procure their demits. I 
have been called upon for advice and relief in this matter in several 
instances, but have been able to aftbrd no assistance. By their 
neglect to prepare for the future, tliey find themselves in an awkward 
position, and I know of no means l)y Avhich they can be extricated, at 
least for the present. My advice has been to remain as they are, 
and that I would lay their case before tlie Grand Lodge. I cannot 
suggest any particular action in the premises. 

I have granted but one Dispensation for a new Lodge during tlic 
past year, and that was to Brother A. S. Heron and others, for a 



12 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

Lodj^e to hv called Pelican Lodge, and attached to the Seventh Kegi- 
mcnt of Louisiana Volunteers, and of which Brother Harry T. Hays 
is tlie Colonel, and with instructions to receive no materials for Work 
outside of tliat reginient. Several applications have been made to 
me for similar dispensations, and which I professed my willingness 
to grant on a proper showing, but the near approach of this session 
has prevented further action. I would grant one to proper parties 
in each regiment of Louisiana Vohinteers, on proper application, 
witli the view that the tedium of camp life might be lessened by the 
practice of our rites on suitable occasions. 

1 have been informed that the Grand Master of Virginia has 
granted a dispensation to certain of our own brethren in the Fifth 
Regiment of Louisiana Vohmteers. This we cannot approve; for 
the soldiers of that regiment, though in Virginia, are yet our own 
citizens, and 1 cannot but regard this as an invasion of our juris- 
diction. We do not invade theirs, for we confine the working of 
our Lodges to our own citizens and to the members of the particular 
regiment to which the Lodge is attached. Our late and our present 
Grand Secretary have had some correspondence on this subject with 
Brother Dove, the Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Virginia, 
but as 3'et no definite action has been taken. Such other Grand 
Masters as liave granted Army Warrants, so lar as niy knowledge 
extends, have confined their jurisdiction to a paiticular regiment 
volunteering from their own jurisdiction. 

Immediately after the close of the Grand Lodge, I caused cliarters 
to be issued to those Lodges to whom they were granted (Silcncio 
No. 9 and Excelsior No. 1G6 had received theirs during the session), 
and the usual authorization for their constitution was given to com- 
]ietent bretliren, wlio reported the ])ro]>er performance of the duties 
CJitrusted to them. The former charters of Springhill Lodge No. 8(i, 
and Livonia No. Dl. the (Jrand Lodge at its last session ordered to be 
returned to them n])()n complying with certain conditions, but as 
yet these Lodges have not availed themselves of this order. 
Friendship Lodge No. 114, xinder the advice of the Grand Lodge, 
has surrendered its charter, and the District Deputy Grand Master 
for that district was directed to receive its books, jewels, etc., and 
to wind up its affairs. A full report has not as yet been received. 

Soon after the close of your last Annual Communication, I ap- 
pointed the several District Deputy Grand Masters, and apportioned 



Erratum.— Page 12, tenth line from bottom, instead of SpringhiU, 
read Pleasant Hill Lodge No. 86, 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 13 

the Lodges among them, a statement of which was appended to the 
last printed proceedings of the Grand Lodge. I have received re- 
ports from but few of them, and they state that but little has been 
done — Work having generally ceased in their several districts. I 
•would suggest the adoption of a regulation making these appoint- 
ments permanent, placing them in the same position, in this respect, 
as the permanent Committee on Work, with whom thej'' are so inti- 
mately connected. It is only in this way that these officers can 
become efficient disseminators of the Work. 

The affairs of the Grand Lodge Ilall are as prosperous as could 
be expected under the present state of aflairs in tlie country. Tlie 
Board of Directors will make a full report to you at the proper time. 

Louisiana Relief Lodge No. 1 has continued in full vigor in the 
work of labor and love, not in the least falling short of its accus- 
tomed usefulness. A report of its doings during the past year will 
be laid before you. 

In April last, the officers of I'olar Star Lodge took possession of 
their property and hall, from which they had been illegally excluded 
for three years and three months. Soon afterwards, at the unani- 
mous request of the members of the Lodge, and by the advice, among 
others, of the entire Board of Directors of the Grand Lodge Hall, I 
entered into a contract with the Lodge, in the name of the Grand 
Lodge, by which the Grand Lodge became the owner of the entire 
property recovered through the courts, estimated at $2t,500 — the 
members of Polar Star Lodge reserving the usufruct of the same 
for Lodge and other Masonic meetings of themselves, not exceed- 
ing two nights in each week, so long as they should continue 
as a Lodge under the jurisdiction ol' this Grand Lpdgc, and no 
longer; the Lodge paying all their incidental expenses, such as 
gas, hall-keeper, etc. This purchase was made for the sum of 
^7,500, in part payment of which w^as their then (28th May, 1861) 
indebtedness of the Lodge ($3,441 10), and for the balance of the 
price I gave the notes of the Grand Lodge, payable in one year, 
with eight per cent, interest from date, amounting to $4,058 90. 
The Lodge required this amount to meet its indebtedness, incurred 
in the suit to recover this very property, which it wished in some 
way to pay off; for though they won the suit, with costs and rents, 
yet the opposing organization was not to be found, at least in a 
responsible shape, after it had been expelled from its illegal posses- 



14 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

sion, and it was a wish of the members, which I could not hesitate 
to grratify, to secure beyond anj' contingency a home for all future 
time, and prevent the occurrence of any trouble such as they had 
)ust experienced, with so much cost and anxiety. Coming to me 
with siicli a showing, I could not but wish to grant their request; 
and acting upon the advice before mentioned, I completed the con- 
tract, and it is now submitted for your approval. Ky this i)uri'hase, 
the Fraternity has a hall, or home as it may be termed, iu the lower 
part of the city, and in which all the Lodges in that portion of it may 
meet, as the others do here, apart from any other society. To be sure, 
the revenue since the purchase has been small, the disturbances of 
the times preventing Lodges from meeting and work, yet this should 
be no cause for discouragement. So far, the charge of the property 
has been wholly upon my hands, in which, however, 1 have been 
very materially assisted by the oflicors of Polar Star Lodge. The 
large basement being unoccupicil, 1 granted it during the summer 
and fall, free of rent (except gas and the care of the room), to 
several military companies, organized in the neighl)(>rhood, as a 
drill room. This I did in consideration of the cause in which they 
were engaged, and as a part of our contribution thereto. I ask 
your appi'oval of this action on my part. I would suggest a regu- 
laijon placing this property, known as the " Polar Star Lodge Hall," 
under the immediate control of the Board of Directors of the Grtuul 
Ijodge Hall, the same as this Hall now is, and of devoting its entire 
revenues (after defraying the necessary expenses), so soon as it shall 
have been paid for, "exclusively to charitable purposes, in the- relief 
of worthy distressed members of the Order, their widows and or- 
phans, to be distributed in such manner as the Grand Lodge shall 
determine, not inconsistent with tlic general good." 

The absence of the Grand Treasurer, from April last, in Florida 
and Virginia, and that of the Grand Secretary, in camp at Proctor- 
ville, necessarilj-^ devolved upon me greater duties than usual, or 
tliaii 1 had anticipated. In these I have been greatl}' aided by our 
Hrotlier Scot, Grand Lodge Hall Keeper, and for the time Assistant 
Grand Secretary. The death of our lamented Brother ]\isk de- 
volved upon me the most difficult position of my niasnnic experi- 
ence, that of taking charge of his masonic business, which his ill 
health had not permitted him to leave as he wished, and to appoint 
his successor. After the most mature consideration and full advice, 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 15 

T appointed our then Grand Treasurer, Past Grand Master Samuel 
M. Todd, as his successor, and deem myself and the Grand Lodge 
fortunate in having been able to procure at that inopportune moment 
the services of one every way so well qualified for the position. 

The appointment of Past Grand Master Todd to the vacant post of 
Grand Secretary, made vacant the oflicc of Grand Treasurer, wliich 
I have conferred for the time upon Brother Harmon Doane, of Louis- 
iana Lodge No. 102, and his place of Grand Marshal has been filled 
pro tern, by Brother Daniel E. Scruggs. 

The accounts of the late Grand Secretary and the Grand Treasurer, 
prepared under my supervision by Brother Scot, with the accom- 
panying vouchers, have been submitted to your Finance Committee, 
and after a proper scrutiny liavc met their approval. They are here- 
with submitted. 

During the past year but few questions have been presented to me 
for my decision, and these have been invariably decided by a refer- 
ence to the law or to some former decision approved by the Grand 
Lodge. 

The greatest call upon me has been for dispensations of time, etc., 
in conferring the degrees upon candidates called to the service of 
their country. Where the Work had been begun and a proper show- 
ing made, I invariabl}^ granted the request, and in a few instances 
dispensed with a portion of tlic time required in new cases, all 
(tthcr formalities being complied with. In one instance I conferred 
the three degrees in one night, in Perkins Lodge, on the captain of 
a company of artillery suddenly called into active service. 

In April last, I had the pleasure of dedicating the fine Hall of 
Perkins Lodge, at Donaldsonville, and afterwards of exhibiting to 
them the Work of the Grand Lodge in the several degrees. 

One case of appeal, that of Brother John Touro, from the action 
of Louisiana Lodge No. 102, comes over from last year. Thi.s will 
require some definite action from the Grand Lodge, otlicrwisc in- 
justice may be done the Brother. 

An amendment of the By-Laws, proposed by Brother Batchelor, 
found on page 72 of the printed proceedings, will come regularly up 
for action this session. 

Two committees were appointed near the close of the last Annual 
Communication — one to procure a new set of collars for the officers 
of the Grand Lodge, and the other to obtain and purchase ground 



IC PROCEEDINNGS OF THE [1862. 

for a Masonic Rest. Neither of these committees have acted, takiug 
advice from the uncertainty of the times, and trusting' to receive 
3^onr approval under the circumstances. I would suggest the con- 
tinuance of the committees another yi'ar. The publication of the 
Masonic History of the State was deferred for similar linancial 
reasons. 

In conclusion, let me urge upon the officers and members of the 
(jrand Lodge, and especially upon the various committees, an early 
attention to the business of the session. Let all matters of im- 
portance be early submitted to an appropriate committee, and let 
the committee fully and at once act upon each question submitted to 
them. Most of the reports of the Standing Committees should be in 
to-morrow evening. There is but little to be laid before any one of 
them, except that on Chartered Lodges, and I would suggest an 
amendment increasing the number of that committee to five or 
seven members. If we go to work systematically and with a will 
to do, our labors will close before the end of the week, and we 
shall return to our homes with the satisfaction of having accom- 
plished our duty to tlic Craft. 

On motion of Bro. S. J. Powell, the above address 
was referred to the appropriate Standing Committees on 
the various subjects treated therein. 

The Standing Committee on Audit and Accounts for 
the year 1801, then presented the following report : 

New Orle.vxs, February 1st, 1862. 

To J. (J. A. Felloivs, Esq., Mod Worshipful Grand Master 

of the Grand Lodge of Louisiana : 

As chairman of the Committee of Audit and Accounts 1 have ex- 
amined the accounts of Bro. Samuel G. Risk, late Grand Secretary, 
and Bro. Samuel M. Todd, late Grand Treasurer, and find them cor- 
rect, and agreeing in every particular with the books of the Grand 
Secretary, as accompanying accounts current will show. 

The account of the Grand Secretary shows a balance of two hun- 
dred and sixty dollars and ten cents (?260 10) due by him to the

The Grand Secretary then read the following report : 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 23 

To the M. W. Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

Brethren: — Having been called upon by the W. M. Grand Master 
to assume the duties of the office left vacant by the sudden death of 
our late worthy Grand Secretary, it has become my duty to lay 
before you a statement of the official business of this office since the 
last Annual Communication. 

Soon after the close of the Annual Communication of 1861, fifteen 
hundred copies of the Proceedings were printed and supplied to the 
Lodges of this State, and to such of our sister jurisdictions as we 
were able to communicate with. A large number are left on hand, 
in the office, owing to the difficulty of transmitting by the usual 
mail routes. For the present year I think that 1500 copies will be 
amply sufficient, and doubtless, it will be thought advisable to leave 
out much of the matter usually printed with our Proceedings, 
enabling us to practice an economy in accordance with the times. 
Charters have been issued to the following Lodges as ordered : 

SiLENCio No. 9 New Orleans. 

Excelsior No. 166 New Orleans. 

Linn Wood No. 167 City of Jefferson, Jefferson Parish, La. 

Montgomery No. 168 Montgomery, Winn Parish, La. 

Haynesville No. 169 Haynesville, Claiborne Parish, La. 

All whom have been legally consecrated and constituted, and the 
returns made to this office by the deputies appointed by the M. W. 
Grand Master for that purpose. 

Only one Dispensation has been granted during the past year, and 
that to a number of Brethren belonging to the 7th Louisiana Regi- 
ment, Col. H. T. Hays, then and now at the seat of war in Virginia ; 
of this Lodge Bro. A. S. Heron was constituted W. M., John H. 
New, S. W., and S. H. Oilman, J. W. The fee was not paid at the 
time of the issuance of the dispensation, but was left an open mat- 
ter for the decision of the Grand Lodge. 

Pleasant Hill Lodge No. 86 and Livonia Lodge No. 91. — Neither 
of these Lodges have complied with the requirements and regulations 
of this Grand Lodge, although both of them were officially' notified 
of the resolution of this Grand Lodge in their favor, passed at the 
last session. 

Friendship Lodge No. 114. — The Committee on Chartered Lodges 
having reported in favor of the return of the Charter of this Lodge, 



24 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

D. D. G. M. John C. Jones, was authorized to wind up the affairs of 
the Lodge. On December 12, 18G1, ho forwarded returns of this 
Lodge for 18o0, made out by him in accordance with the instruction 
forwarded to him. I have, since that time, written to R. W. Bro. 
Jones, giving liim the pro rata amount due by each member, upon 
the payment of which he would be entitled to a certiticate of good 
standing. 

The Brethren residing in the Parish of Sabine, who had applied 
last year for a Dispensation to open a Lodge to be called " Goodson 
Lodge," have withdrawn their application, on account of the un- 
settled state of affairs in that parish, owing to the present war. 

St. Joseph Lodge No. 79. — This Lodge has failed to make any 
returns for the years 1860 and 1861. The W. Master having 
removed out of the State, Bro. Julius Aroni, the last S. W. has been 
twice written to in reference to the condition of the Lodge; once by 
W. Bro. Risk, iu March, 1861, and by myself in January, 1862, in 
the hope that he might be able to resuscitate the Lodge, and restore 
it to its former prosperous condition. 

Bro. Aroni answers under date of 4th instant, drawing a very 
gloomy picture of the condition of this Lodge. No oflScers have 
been elected for the last two years, and nothing else, it seems, can 
be done but for the Grand Lodge to withdraw its charter and wind 
up its affairs. 

Solomon Lodge No. 130. — This Lodge was so unfortunate as to 
lose their worthy Secretary, Bro. T. M. Evans, who was blown up 
on the steamboat Kentucky, last summer. The death of this officer 
prevented the returns of this Lodge being made with its usual 
punctuality. 

Germania Lodge No. 46. — This Lodge has submitted a new code 
of By-Laws, adopted in November last, which, being in the German 
language, have been placed in tlio, hands of P. G. M. Holland, for 
translation. 

CoNSTANTiNK LoDGK No. 119. — This Lodgc has formally dissolved 
its organization, and returned its charter, books, jewels, and other 
property belonging to the Lodgc, with a statement of its liabilities 
and assets. The W. M. asks that some one in the vicinity of the 
Lodge be appointed to collect the amount due by members. 

Ph(enix Lodge No. 38. — This Lodge is still indebted for the dues 
of 1860, for the payment of which an extension of time was given to 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 25 

them last year. They have made their returns and paid dues for the 
year 1861. 

De Soto Lodge No. 55. — This Lodge has made returns for the 
year 1861, but have made no election of officers for the present year. 
They have adopted resolutions to surrender charter. 

Napoleon Lodge No. 94. — This Lodge has sent up a recommenda- 
tion to reinstate Bro. J. G. Hollis, suspended by the Grand Lodge 
in 1851. 

Mackey Lodge No. 122. — Bro. John R. Carr, who was expelled by 
this Lodge, has made an appeal to the Grand Lodge, asking for a 
new trial. The papers in this case arc ready for the Committee on 
Appeals and Grievances. 

Atchafal.^ya Lodge No. 163. — An appeal has also been taken by 
James Callahan against the action of this Lodge in a trial for un- 
masonic conduct, by which he was ordered to be reprimanded. 

Mount Gerizim Lodge No. 54 and Harry Hill Lodge No. 134. — These 
two Lodges have agreed to unite, the members of Harry Hill Lodge 
surrendering the charter of that Lodge, and becoming members of Mt. 
Gerizim No. 54, and ask the sanction of the Grand Lodge to their 
action. 

John Tocro vs. Louisiana Lodge No. 102. — Tins case was con- 
tinued to this session, from last year, on account of the absence of 
witnesses. 

Louisiana Kelief Lodge No. 1. — This Lodge has pursued tljc even 
tenor of its way, as in former years ; notwithstanding the hard- 
ness of the times, it has continued to extend relief to the worthy, 
with careful discrimination. A report has been made by its officers 
in accordance with the regulations of the Grand Lodge. 

There arc many Lodges who are indebted for back dues and Grand 
Lodge Hall tax, a full enumeration of which will be found on refer- 
ence to the trial balance accompanjing this report, to which, and to 
the account current herewith submitted, I respectfully ask the atten- 
tion of the Committee on Accounts. 

I present to the Grand Lodge the resolutions adopted by Lafay- 
ette Lodge No. 87, and Olive Lodge No. 52, on the death of our late 
Grand Secretary, Samuel G. Risk. 

We have now under our jurisdiction 112 Chartered Lodges, and 
one Military Lodge Under Dispensation.

At the last Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge Bro. J. C. 
Batchelok, submitted the following a^ an amendment to tho Uraud 
Lodge By Laws. 

"The Grand Treasurer and Grand Secretary- of ibi.s Grand Lodge shall 
each execute a bond satisfactory to the Grand Master, in the full sum of five 
thousand dollars, to this Grand Lodge, within tcu days after their election and 
installation, for the faithful performance of their duty." 

All of which i.s fraternally submitted, 

SAMUEL M. TODD, Grand Secretary. 



28 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

On motion, the Grand Secretary's report was referred 
to the appropriate Standing Committees on the snbjects 
therein reported. 

The following report from the Committee on Foreign 
Correspondence was then read, and, on motion, was 
adopted, and ordered to be spread on the minutes, and 
printed with the Proceedings : 

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

Your Committee on Correspondcuct; have had betuie them the 
Proceedings and documents of the following Grand Lodges: 

ALABAMA, of December, 18G0 Received March 19. 1861. 

NEW JEIISEY, of January, 1861 " March '23, 1861. 

MICHIGAN, of January, 18G1 •• February 15, 1861.

TEXAS, of June, 1861 " February 1, 1862. 

OHIO MASONIC CONSTITUTIONS, 1801 " April 1, 1861. 

ALABAMA. 

The fortieth Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Ala- 
bama was held at Montgomery, December 30th, 1860. M. W. Bro. 
Richard H. Ervin, Grand Master, in his address pays a feeling 
tribute to the memories of Brothers S. D. Moorer, Junior Grand War- 
den, and James A. Whitaker, Past Junior Grand Warden, botii of 
whom had died during the j^ear. 

In referring to Lodges Under Dispensation, he says: 

"I think it advisable to enforce the regulation to be found on page 76 of the 
printed Proceedings of 1851 — that petitioners for a Dispensation should file with 
the Grand Secretary their demits, before a Dispensation should be issued by him, 
and thus prevent a habit of loaning names for the creation of new Lodges, as it is 
questionable if there are not now more Lodges than comports with the interest of 
Masonry, or than can maintain a healthy and true Masonic life." 

The Report on Correspondence is from the pen of Bro. L. B. Tliorn- 
ton, covering sixty pages of the printed Proceedings; this is a very 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 29 

able report, reviewing, with great care, the Proceedings of thirtj' 
Grand Lodges, our own among the number. It copies, approvingly, 
some very flattering remarks in reference to the management of 
Louisiana Relief Lodge. 

NEW JERSEY. 

The seventy-fourth Grand Annual communication of this Grand 
Lodge was held at Trenton, ou the 16th January, 1861. 

"The M. W. Grand Master, Isaac Van Wagoner, alluded in his 
address to tlie " unsettled state of the country," but believed that 
" the Masonic relations between the diflferent portions thereof con- 
tinued as firm, unchangeable, and enduring, as though no withering 
wind had swept over us." 

The Report on Correspondence is an interesting document, several 
extracts are made from the Proceedings of our Grand Lodge in 1860, 
and favorably commented upon. They recommend the refunding to 
Louisiana Relief Lodge the sum of twenty-two dollars, which had 
been given in the two previous years to applicants for relief from 
that State. 

MICHIGAN. 

The Grand Lodge of Michigan was convened at Detroit, January 
9th, 1861, P. G. M. Robert Morris, of Kentucky, was present, and 
exhorted the Brethren of that State, " that whatever results might 
follow the present fearful state of public feeling, even though the 
national fabric were to crumble and decay, and the people degenerate 
into civil war, the Masonic tie must not be broken, weakened, or 
affected." -^ 

But a brief period had elapsed since Bro. Morris addressed these 
words to his brethren of Michigan, when the fearful state of things 
he so much feared was a terrible reality, and Kentucky again be- 
came the " Dark and Bloody Ground of its ancient traditions." 

VERMONT. 

This Grand Lodge assembled in Burlington, on the 9th day of 
January, 1861. The opening address of Grand Master Philip C. 
Tucker is of such a character as might have been expected from this 
venerable and learned Brother. His feelings and prejudices are 
those of his section, but his whole heart is enlisted in the cause 



30 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

to which 80 much of his life has beeu devoted — Masonry; and we 
cannot, therefore, blame him for so ardently desirincr the continuanc*' 
of his much loved Union. 

The Report on Correspondence is compiled with much care, uud 
presents much interesting matter culled from the Pmcoeding's of 
other Grand Lodges, " without intruding their own personal views 
upon matters which often perplex the wisest of the craft." 

Since writing the abf)ve, we have learned that Grand Master 
Phillip C. Tucker died on the 10th April last. He had hold the 
office of Grand Master fourteen years, having been tirst elected 
in 1847. 

MISSISSIPPI. 

The M. W. Grand Lodge of Mississippi held its I'orty-tiiird Annual 
Grand Communication, at Vicksburg, in January, 1861. In the ab- 
sence of the Grand Master, Deput}' and Wardens, Past ( Jrand Master 
Tappan was called upon to preside. 

Past Grand Master W. P. Mellen wa.s received as the representative 
from the Grand Lodge of Louisiana witli hearty welcome, and the 
assurance of the sincere wishes and co-operation of the " Grand 
Lodge of Mississippi" with this Grand Lodge " for the union, pros- 
perity, and perpetuation of our useful, ancient and honurable Order." 

It was decided that a non-afTiliated Master Mason, " who refusi-s 
to pay dues to the Lodge nearest liis place of residence, cannot be- 
come a member of a Lodge out of whose jurisdiction he resides.'' 

We do not consider this to be good masonic law, but rather l\old 
that "a master mason is not restricted in his application for Mirtu- 
bership within geographical limits." 

We are sorry to miss the usual Report on (yorresponiiciur. 

ARKANSAS. 

This Grand Lodge was convened at Little Rock, on the fourth day 
of November, 1861, fifty-nine Lodges being represented. 

M. W. Bro. E. H. English, Grand M'aster, delivered a patriotic and 
spirit-stirring address to the Craft. lie thus explains the reason of 
many of the Lodges being unrepresented : 

" On looking over this hall 1 behold not the familiar luces <>f rnany brethren 
who sat here twelve months ago, and who, for many years before, were accus- 
tomed to bring up work for inspection at the Annual Convocations of the Craft. 
On heaving the roll of the workmen called, it appears that there are no voices to 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 31 

respond for a number of the subordinate Lodges. Why are these brethren absent ? 
Why are their Lodges unrepresented ? The answer is in every mouth, with all its 
thrilling and momentous associations — ' They have laid aside the gavel, the trowel 
and the plumb-line, and taken up the sword ; and, this night, their tents whiten 
many a plain, and their patriotic breasts help to form a living wall, to protect 
eleven States of a once glorious Union, from the invasion and desolation of the 
armies ofa,7}ian, if he may be called such, who now desecrates the seat once occu- 
pied by the good and great Washington.' '" 

There was no report of the Committee on Foreign Correspondence 

CONNECTICUT. 

We have received the Proceedings of the Annual ('ommnnication 
of this Grand Lodge, held at Hartford, in May, 1861. 

The address of Grand Master Howard B. Ensign is temperately 
written, and mainly confined to matters of local interest ; he simply 
alludes to the scenes of war and turmoil through which our once 
happy country has and is now passing, and hopes that they will 
soon end. He says — 

" Our Order is flourishing ; our Lodges continue to enjoy their quiet meetings ; 
strife enters not our well-guarded portals; politics and political differences are 
unknown among us.'" 

A form of petition was adopted in wliich the candidate for initia- 
tion declared that he was " a firm believer in the existence of a Su- 
preme Being," that " he had resided within the State for more than 
twelve months, and within the jurisdiction of the Lodge more than 
six months immediately preceding his application ; also, that he had 
not then been rejected by any Lodge of Masons within the six months 
previous to his application." 

The Report on Correspondence is from the pen of the Grand Secre- 
tary, who, as usual, omits any mention of this Grand Lodge. 

FLORIDA. 

The Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Florida was 
begun and held in the citj^ of Tallahassee, January 14th, 1861. 

M. W. Bro. D. C. Larkins was re-elected Grand Master, and W. 
Bro. John B. Taylor, Grand Secretary. 

P. G. M. Thomas Brown was received as the Representative of 
this Grand Lodge. 

The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Florida, from its establish- 
ment in 1830 to 1860, have been reprinted in a bound volume of 
880 pages — no doubt a very interesting work. 



38 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

The Report on Correspondence is a Inief sumniary of tlie proceed- 
ings of sister Grand Lodges. 

TEXAS. 

This Grand Lodge met in the City of Houston, on the 10th day of 
June, 186L M. W. Grand Master John B. McMahon, in his address, 
says — 

"Our long anticipated meeting iu the ' Bayou City " lias arrived, iu the same 
place where, nearly a quarter of a century ago, this Grand Lodge was organized, 
with the Subordinates now numbering as many hundred. Then, with u small and 
narrow territory under settlement — now spreading in every direction to the utter- 
most bounds of our great State. At that time Texas had high hopes of being able 
to sustain herself through a bloody revolution; now we are about entering into 
another to sustain civil and religious liberty.'" 

A surplus of cash in the treasury was ordered to be invested in 
Confederate Bonds. Upon the election of a new Grand Treasurer, 
the P. G. Treasurer, A. Neill, was called upon by a committee to as- 
certain where the funds of the Grand Lodge were, but it appears that 
Bro. Neill refused to give the information sought, whereupon a res- 
olution was adopted directing the G. Secretary to make a peremp- 
tory demand for " all funds, assets and money-vouchers in his hands.'" 

There was no Report on Correspondence, but a very interesting 
address was delivered by R. W. Bro. S. G. Newton, at the installa- 
tion of Grand Officers. 

OHIO. 

Wc have been favored with a copy of the "Constitution, By-Laws, 
Rules and Code of Masonic Jurisprudence and Resolutions of the 
Grand Lodge of Ohio," containing much useful matter in the way of 
forms, Masonic funeral service, and other ceremonies, making it 
altogether a very useful compilation. 

"With this brief review of the acts of other Grand Lodges that have 
been brought to their notice, your Committee close their labors with 
the hope that before another annual gathering of the Brethren of 
this Grand Lodge, fraternal intercourse shall have been reopened — 
not only with our sister Grand Lodges of this Confederacy, but with 
many foreign Grand Lodges. 

Fraternally submitted, 

SAMUEL M. TODD, Chairman. 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 33 

The following report from Louisiana Relief Lodge No. 
1 was then read, and, on motion, was received, and 
ordered to be printed with the Proceedings : 

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

In accordance with the custom heretofore observed, on tlic return 
of another Annual Communication, Louisiana Relief Lodge No. 1 
bogs leave to present tUe following Rr.roRT: 

We liave again to rettirn our sincere and heartfelt thanks to our 
Supreme Grand Master for his loving-kindness in blessing our city 
with health during the past year, and keeping far from our midst 
the destroying pestilence. While the Relief Lodge lias escaped the 
great personal exertion and iucr(\ased expenditure, always accom- 
panying an epidemic, other demands of a now and novel cliaractor 
have been imposed upon us. 

Immediately on the secession of Louisiana from the old Union, 
many Brethren from the Northern States, then resident among us 
and imable to obtain emplo3'meut, were desirous of returning to 
what they deemed a more congenial clime. \Vlioiie\(n- the case was 
found worthy, relief was granted to enable tlic Brolher to reach his 
home, as a reference to the annexed statistical table will show. 
After hostilities had commenced, the Rebel" Lodge adopted as a rule 
to grant no assistance to able-bodied men, who had no families 
depending upon them — believing that when our independence was at 
stake, it was the duty of all to defend it, and that, when no other 
means of support could be obtained, no good Mason would desire to 
eat the bread of idleness, while the opportunity was ofiered to him 
to enter the army, and protect the rights and honor of our country. 
Since that time our charities have been principally contined to 
widows and orphans, and cases of sickness. Relief has been grant- 
ed in several instances to Masons in the arm^'^, who were unable, 
either from sickness or improvidence, to reach their homes or return 
to camp. 

The subject of unaffiliated Masons, and female side degrees has 
been so often brought to the notice of this Grand Lodge, that it is 
superfluous to again repeat the numerous cases of both descrip- 
tions which are continually applying for relief It is only necessary 
to say that the evil has not been abated. 



34 PROCEEDINKGS OF THE [1862. 

In our last report it was stated that our Tomb had been renovated 
and an additional wing built, at a cost of $1,500, of which amount 
$1,000 had been paid, and a note of $500 given for the balance. 
Doubts were expressed as to our ability to meet this note at maturity; 
but it is gratifying to state, that it was duly honored. There is ano- 
ther wing still to be built, before the structure will be completed 
according to the original design. But the idea of fini.shing the 
Tomb has been abandoned until the return of peace and resumption 
of business. < 

The "Ancient Charges" declare that "Masonry hath been always 
injured by war" and "ever flourished in times of peace." If any 
one ever doubted this truth, our present War of Independence must 
convince the most skeptical. Large numbers of the active members 
of our Lodges are absent on the tented field, and of those who remain 
at home, all who are able-bodied are members of volunteer compan- 
ies. The Lodges have done little or no work during the past year. 
Their Treasuries have been exhausted, and the demands upon them 
for charity have been frequent and urgent. It is gratifying to state 
that notwithstanding the numerous other calls made upon them, the 
Contributing Lodges have made every effort to pay their dues to the 
Relief Lodge. Although our receipts have been materially reduced, 
and the usefulness of the Lodge thereby circumscribed, no worthy 
case has been turned empty away. 

Our Secretary, Bro. A. DeSola, has prepared the following state- 
ment of the receipts and expenditures of the Kelicf Lodge, for the 
year 1861.

Wc have again to return our thanks to several Masonic bodies for 
the sympatliy and assistance extended by them to us. By referring 
to our receipts, it will be seen that their sympathy was not confined 
to words, and the material aid bestowed, testified their appreciation 
of our " work." 

* Lodges under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of England. 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 37 

Past Grand Master Wm. M. Perkins, has again presented to the 
Lodge, his annual donation of $31 75, thereby proving the same 
interest in our success which he has always exhibited since the for- 
mation of the Relief Lodge. 

Two Brethren of other Jurisdictions have returned the amounts 
granted them, and the relatives of a deceased brother re-imbursed 
the Lodge, for the expenses attendant upon his last sickness and 
funeral. Cases like these stand out like an oasis in the desert, and 
encourage us to persevere in our labors. For it is a consolation to 
know that among tlie many applicants for relief that some are truly 
worthy, and are not unmindful of their plighted faith. 

Hoping that our "work" may always be such as will merit a con- 
tinuance of the approbation of the Grand Lodge, this report is re- 
spectfully and fraternally submitted on behalf of the Lodge.

The following report from the Board of Directors of 
the Grand Lodge Hall, was then read : 

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the Stale of Louisiana : 

The Board of Directors of the Grand Lodge Masonic Hall respect- 
fully present their Ninth Annual Report. 



38 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

In the mouth of May last the claims against tlie Hall for altera- 
tions, repairs, etc., were so pressingly urgent that it became neces- 
sary to raise money by a mortgage of this property ; this loan was 
eflected by the President of the Board, of Mr. John G. Grant, in the 
sum of seven thousand dollars, at the rate of 13 per cent., for twelve 
months, the several parties holding claims against the building 
agreeing to deduct 5 per cent, from the amounts due them, thus re- 
ducing the rate of interest allowed to 8 per cent. 

On the expiration of the leases held by Messrs. McCerren & Landry, 
and W. P. Coleman, these parties declined taking new leases at the 
same rent as heretofore paid by them, it was therefore thought best 
to reduce the rent for the present year; accordingly a new lease was 
given to Messrs. McCerren & Landry for the year ending October 
31st, 1862, for $1,500, and a lease given to W. P. Coleman and T. B. 
Bodley for $900 for same length of time. 

The following amounts have been collected for rent since the last 
Annual Communication :

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiujia : 

The Committee of Audit and Accounts submit fur your considera- 
tion the following report: 

The accounts of the Grand Treasurer and Crand Secretary to Feb- 
ruary 1st, 18G2, have been examined and found correct. The account 
of the Grand Treasurer shows a balance on hand, at that dale, of 
eleven hundred and thirty-four dollars fifty-nine cents, ($1,134 fiU) 
as per statement annexed. 

A full and lucid statement of the condition and affairs of the Grand 
Lodge having been presented by the Board of Directors of the Grand 
Lodge Hall, the Committee deem it unnecessary to recapitulate, as 
it would be entirely superlluous. It is proper, however, to state that 
the balance due by Bro. Risk, late Grand Secretary (which occurred 
on account of the absence of both tlu^ Grand Treasurer and Grand 
Secretary, in the service of the Confederacy), has been paid by the

ture, etc., valued at $85 92. Amount of indebtedness, after deduct- 
ing assets, $385 58. Bro. J. J. Yurborough states that J. S. Jacks, 
and the house of Yarborough & Best are willing to take in payment 
the jewels and furniture of the Lodge, for amount indebted to them. 
Your Committee, therefore, recommend that Bro. J. J. Yarborough 
be authorized, after appraising the jewels, furniture, etc., of De Sido 
Lodge No. 55, to dispose of them to the best advantage ; that the 
members of the Lodge be assessed in equal proportion to i)ay amount 
balance of indebtedness bj' the Lodge, excepting that part duo the 
Grand Lodge, and that the Grand Lodge remit such dues as have 
not been paid, in the hope that, by so doing, it may facilitate the 
resuscitating of said Lodge. 

Mount Gerizim Lodge No. 54 and Harry Hill Lodge No. 134. 
Your Committee having examined the papers connected with the re- 
quest of these Lodges, do recommend tliat it being conducive to the 
interests of the Order that there be not more Lodges in any one 
place than necessity actually requires, that Harry Ilill Lodge be 
permitted to transfer or make over to Mount Gerizim Lodge all its 
jewels, furniture, and also all rights and titles that it may have to 
a certain building in which they meet, thereby forming but one 
Lodge, under the name of Mount Gerizim; said Lodge to assume all 
debts of Harry Hill No. 134; and, in addition, that the members of 
Harry Hill Lodge No. 134, be authorized to have their names en- 
rolled as members of Mount Gerizim Lodge No. 54. 

CoNSTANTiNE LoDGE No. 119. — After due examination of the com- 
munications received from this Lodge, your Committee recommend 
tliat tlic charter, jewels, etc., of said Lodge, be received, and that 
doinits be granted to the following named members, now in good 
standing, having j)aid their dues, viz. : H. M. McCulloch, II. M.

Fischel, J. Gordon, J. H. Penney, G. M. Ik'own, J. J. Smokey, as well 
as to the following brothers who arc now in the army, and also that 
their dues be remitted, viz.: F. N. Gaton, W. G. Hughes, J. A. Reed, 
J. J. Powell ; and, furthermore, that Bro. W. F Lynch, W. M., be 
appointed by this Grand Lodge its agent to sell, or otherwise dis- 
l)()se of the remaining i)roperty of the Lodge, also to collect such

54 PROCEEDINGS OP THE [1862. 

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

Your Committee on Appeals and Grievances having had under 
consideration the appeal from Atchafalaya Tx)dge No. 163, beg leave 
to report : 

1st. AVe find an irregularity in llio proceedings in this, that the 
Committee appointed to take the testimony of witnesses out of the 
Lodge, do not appear to have given notice to the accused of the time 
and place of taking it. 

2d. The testimony of some of the witnesses does not agree with 
the statement of the Brethren making the charges, and none of them 
state that the Brother called on Bro. Calliham to comply with his 
agreement, according to the terms agreed on. 

We, therefore, offer the following resolution : 

Reiohed, That the sentence of reprimaud passed by Atchafayla Lodge No. 
163, on the 23d March, 1861, against Bi-o. James Callihani be set aside. 

H. K. SWASEY,

On motion of Bro. B. da Silya, the report and resolu- 
tion were adopted, after amending the resolution, by 
adding — 

And that the case be sent back to Atchafalaya Lodge No. 1G3, for 
a new trial, according to the Regulations of the Grand Lodge. 

The same Committee also submitted the following re- 
port and resolution on the case of Bro. John Touro : 

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

Your Committee on Appeals and Grievances have again had under 
consideration the appeal from Louisiana Lodge No. 102, of Bro. 
John Touro, who was indefinitely suspended two years since. The 
record in the case was defective in this, that the oral testimony taken 
in the Lodge was not reduced to writing, and a correct understand- 
ing of the case could not be had for the want of it. This Grand 
Lodge has twice ordered Louisiana Lodge to have the testimony 



1862.] GRAND LODGE. 65 

taken and returned to the Grand Secretary, which she has failed to 
do, and as Bro. Touro expresses himself able and willing to establish 
his innocence of the charges, your Committee feel it to be their duty 
to give him an opportunity to do so, and would respectfully offer for 
your consideration the following resolution : 

Resolved, That the decision of Louisiana Lodge No. 102, in the case of Bro. 
John Touro, be avoided, annulled and reversed, and that the papers and docu- 
ments be sent back to the Lodge, with instructions to forthwith order a new trial, 
strictly complying with the Grand Lodge Regulations as made and provided.

Bro. A. Martin moved to strike out of the resolution 
all after the word "reversed." * 

Bro. J. Booth moved to amend, by inserting " that the 
case be sent for trial to some other Lodge, instead of 
Louisiana Lodge No. 102," which amendment was 
adopted. 

On motion of Bro. A. Martin, the report and resolu- 
tion, as amended, were adopted. 

On motion of Bro. H. M. Crenshaw, the M. W. Grand 
Master was authorized to designate the Lodge in which 
he should be tried. 

The Committee on Masonic Law and Jurisprudence 
then submitted a report, which, after considerable discus- 
sion, they were permitted to withdraw. 

Bro. A. S. Washburn offered the following resolution : 

Resolved, That the sum of fifty dollars be appropriated to our Rev. 
and W. Grand Chaplain, Bro. C. S. Hedges. 

On motion of Bro. B. da Silva, the resolution was 
amended by substituting " one hundred dollars," instead 



56 PROCEEDINGS OF THE [1862. 

of "fifty dollars,'" and the resolution as amended was 
adopted, the amount being for last yeav and this. 

Bro. S. 0. Scruggs offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted : 

liesolved, That tlie usual foe for Dispensation to rdican Lodge U. 
D., of the 7th Regiment Louisiana Volunteers be remitted, and that 
no charge be made for Dispensations granted to Military Lodges 
during the continuance of tlic present war. 

Bro. G. SoNTAG, the Chairman of tlie Committee on 
Lodges under Dispensation, stated the}' had nothing to 
report on. 

Bro. A. DuQUERCRON then called up the amendment to 
Art. 1, Chap. 1, Sec. 2 of the By-Laws of the Grand 
Lodge, offered by him at the session of yesterday, which 
reads as follows : 

The last of which Committees shall be composed of seven Masters 
or Past Masters of Lodges; the Committee on Ciiartered Lodges to 
consist of five members; the Committee on Masonic Law and Juris- 
prudence to consist of seven members. All otlier Committees shall 
be composed each of three members of tlio (Jrand Lodge. 

When, on motion, the amendment was unanimously 
adopted. 

The M. W. Grand Master then appointed as additional 
members of the Committee on Chartered Lodges, Bros. 
S. J. Powell and W. W. Risher. 

Bro S. 0. Scruggs, on behalf of the Special Committee 
on the death of Past Deputy Grand Master Thomas Har- 
deman Lewis, after some appropriate preliminary remarks, 
then submitted the following preamble and resolutions, 
which, after an eloquent eulogium on the cliaracter of

To the M. W. the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana : 

The Committee on Chartered Lodges beg leave to submit the fol- 
lowing report : 

Shiloh Lodge No. 131. From the representations of Pro. District 
Deputy Grand Master IT. Regenburg, it appears that the members of 
Shiloh Lodge No. 131, held a meeting on the first Saturday of 
January, 1862, at wliich meeting they elected officers ; thereby 
resuscitating the Lodge, and have determined to carry on the work. 
Now, inasmuch as they have not paid their dues for the last year 
and this, and according to Sec. 7, Art. 7, of the Grand Lodge Con- 
stitution, their Charter is forfeited ; and, again, they are in doubt 
as to the propriety of their acts in the premises, your Committee 
recommend that the M. W. Grand Master give them autl«)rity to 
proceed with their Work as before. 

Sprinohill Lodge No. 121 — The name of J. D. Gibson has been 
placed on the returns, but no mention is therein made as to his 
initiation or affiliation. Li our last report this Lodge was mentioned 
as not having made returns or paid dues ; we now report that tlic 
returns have since been made, but no dues arc yet paid.
